12 Days of Crocheted Stocking Stuffers

DAY 10



Day 10, only a couple of days left to go in the 12 Days of Crocheted Stocking Stuffers Series. Hopefully you have enjoy the projects so far and they have given you some good stocking stuffer ideas.

Today's project is another kid gift, this one is great for little kids. A little farm animal finger puppet playlet that includes a few animal finger puppets and a drawstring bag that looks like a barn to keep them in.
`

This pattern is actually based on a project that I first came up with probably about 8 years ago, several years before I started this blog. I wrote down the pattern in a notebook that my kids eventually ripped up. I decided it finally time to recreate that pattern and it would make a great stocking stuffer, so why not include it in this series.


I made 4 animals but they are all made with the same base pattern so you could use it to make whatever other animals you can think of, just add different ears, faces, etc.


How to Make Farm Animal Finger Puppet Playset


You will need:

  • small amount of worsted weight yarn in red, white, black, and colors needed for animals (I used mostly Red Heart Super Saver)
  • G crochet hook 
  • H crochet hook
  • yarn needle
  • scissors
  • embroidery floss
  • embroidery needle

Instructions:

The finger puppets are worked in a spiral, starting with a magic ring. Each one starts with the same base body, then ears, beaks, snouts, etc. are sewn on at the end.
The bag is worked in the round, joining each round.
